King of the ranch.
The FJ45 Troopy was a vehicle that took miners to work, children to school and soldiers to war. This one served the Colombian National Guard, a national university, and a foundation for troubled teens. However, when our client discovered this model in our inventory, a new kind of story began. The first chapter? A frame-off restoration, with the goal of returning this FJ45 to its original condition. Once this model was perfected, customized and tested, it was delivered to the new owner’s Texas ranch, for some good, old-fashioned family fun.
A Formidable Powertrain
Look under the hood of this classic Land Cruiser, and you’ll find an engine tough enough to power this impressive piece of machinery. The 3F engine was the most powerful F series engine produced by Toyota - and its last. Pair that with an automatic transmission and you're in for some smooth sailing - on the highway or trail.
That long wheelbase! Those aggressive fender flares! That iconic headlight bezel! - All telltale signs that you’re in the presence of greatness. And since greatness is so rare these days, we kept this Troopy’s classic good looks intact and made a few carefully chosen updates. We painted the exterior in Toyota OEM Beige, and replaced the hardtop with one of our custom soft tops. The exterior lighting was upgraded and every emblem was replaced with a new, original version of itself.
A Refined Cabin
The interior cabin of this Troopy is cavernous and clean, the perfect blend of throwback style and modern convenience. Front bucket seats are trimmed in Tan vinyl, as are the second-row bench seats, and the two fold-down seats in the back. Modern air conditioning and crystal clear audio flow freely throughout the cabin.
